Digital Humanities Working Group

The CERL Working Group for Digital Humanities aims to support library management and curators of Special Collections (rare books and manuscripts) to develop a well-informed mid- to long-term vision for the interconnection between Digital Humanities research and their organisation’s special collections, its associated data and metadata.

The working group works with university based, library based, national and international entities seeking to ensure that we have the opportunity to enhance their work through an understanding of the available data and its potential offering. The WG will provide information and organise training for management and curators of special collections in DH technologies.
